Applied Mathematics Qualifying Exam Requirements
Each Applied Math PhD Student will pass three qualifying requirements as proposed in his/her Study Advisory Plan and approved by the AMSC Graduate Committee.
 The first must be a Mathematics Department Written Qualifying Exam in either Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Probability, or Statistics mathematics area.
 The second must be a qualifying requirement in his/her application area, whatever form that takes Application Area Qualifying Exam.
 The third can be either:
 a second qualifying requirement in his/her application area, whatever form that takes;
 a second Mathematics Department Written Qualifying Exam in either Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Probability, or Statistics;
 pass three courses with a grade of B or better and a GPA of at least 3.5, where two of the courses must be from one of the sequences
 MATH 600601
 MATH 630631
 MATH 730740
 AMSC 660661
 AMSC 666612
 AMSC 666614
 AMSC 673674
 STAT 600601
 STAT 700701
and the third course can be drawn from the above list or from
 MATH 634
 MATH 642
 MATH 660
 MATH 670
 MATH 712
 MATH 713
 MATH 734
 AMSC 600
 AMSC 612
 AMSC 614
 AMSC 662
 STAT 650
Courses cannot be drawn from both AMSC 660661 and AMSC 666667 or from any course upon which the Mathematics written exam used to satisfy requirement 1 is based.
AM/SC Qualifying Exam Substitution
Students who are still deciding between the AM and SC tracks have the option of taking AMSC 660, 661, and 662. Successful completion of this sequence (GPA of 3.5 or better) satisfies one qualifying exam requirement for the AM track, or helps fulfill the preliminary coursework requirements for the SC track.
